“In the lap of nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

We stayed here for 3 nights for one of our mate's destination wedding. I must insist that this is best resort you will find in the back waters of Kerala with its majestic location , spa , food and hospitality. The resort is placed away from the noise of the city and in the night you can literally hear the river flowing next to the resort. We stayed in one of suites with private balcony so it was awesome to wake up for coffee in the morning with a view to die for. A must visit for the traditional spa and south indian food.

Room Tip: Get the Suite with the river view

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

It was my first visit to the Place.... not planned just a sudden drop in.

The Staff was very warm and made the booking quick and also offered a good discount.

The Ambience of the Place is really fantastic with morning breakfast can be a blessing with a amazing sunrise and river facing view.

But the rooms and other areas were definitely very poor in making a person comfortable.

a) No Menu was provided in the Room - it was to be requested, and it came as a rotten book.

b) The Mini Bar was totally empty ????

c) Switches provided for Charging were all burnt and there was no current .

d) It was such a wonderful property which i had to discover by looking on the internet. - there were no information desk or booklets which way of which the guest can be acquainted.

e) Room Service was Pathetic : Of the menu only selected items were present and also the Ice-cream provided was truly full of ICE.

Areas of Improvement :

a) Some kind of information desk or at least a paper which can highlight the services offered in the resort with few details.

b) Better Training for Room Service

c) Better training for housekeeping

d) Training to Restaurant staff.

Room Tip: a) Rooms facing the River give a good view.

I had a great time here, stayed in a cottage with a balcony with view on the backwaters. Beautiful pool with a little island on it, very friendly staff, dance performance in little amphitheatre at night. Great food. One of the best dinners I had in India. All perfect!

Stayed here with large group of people, stayed in a cottage and it was amazing. The staff is great, the pool is great, and the views are great. The food was good. I wish I would off gotten to spend more time here. I will be coming back for sure. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Make sure you stay in a cottage, it is very private, has amazing views and they are very cozy.

I only went to the hotel for a good breakfast. The options for a western breakfast were slightly limited and was mostly South Indian cuisine. They did have a varied selection of sweet breads but some of them- such as the marble cake- tasted like packaged store bought ones.
The restaurant was teeming with customers and though that explains the slow service, it is definitely not what you expect from a "5 star" hotel.
What annoyed me was that the loos were very badly maintained! While the restaurant loo had a maintenance sign on it, the one in the lobby had no such sign and yet there was no soap in the dispenser. The overall look of the loos were also quite dingy and not as clean or brightly lit as you would expect in such a place.
Granted that the hotel has a scenic location, but it does not feel like it is run by regular ITC standards.
On the plus side, the bill for a buffet breakfast for 4 came to Rs. 1400. I guess that slightly makes up for all their shortcomings!

We stayed for 2 nights in this ITC hotel last year. Only pluses: Location is excellent, property looks good from outside, good views from the lake view rooms, Staff in the resort are amiable -thats it.

This is a great property but definitely not meeting the benchmark of a 5 star resort. More likely suiting a decent budget property! A total revamp of the rooms, facilities, resort is needed for the resort to aim for a 5 star. Place also seems little understaffed.

In my room Air conditioning was faulty all the time. Person came to fix this time and again with zero result. In one of my friends rooms, the bathroom handle broke and fell off, Shower nozzles were loosely fixed, running water had a horrible metallic taste...the list goes on for the room and amenities.

Food is reasonably OK, but during Buffet times the service dips a lot especially for the 'at counter' delicacies.

Will I come again or will I recommend this as a 5 star - nope. Time for ITC to pull up its socks.

Room Tip: Lake view rooms are good

This is a gorgeous place, with confortable rooms, fancy touristic-ayurveda massages and a nice dinner area by the pool. If possible, book one of the cottages with lake views. Just avoid the cultural programes, as they're unfortunately very poorly handled. Same goes for the yoga lesson, which is very basic and short.
